Siemens released a new hearing aid at the AudiologyNOW! conference of the American Academy of Audiology being held in Boston these days. The new device can be placed discretely deep in the ear canal. A replaceable foam cylinder makes it possible to position the aid directly in front of the eardrum. Two different performance levels are available, for light and mild hearing loss.
The hearing aid is equipped with XCEL technology which manages the balance between speech amplification and background noise. The algorithms in the technology facilitate easy listening even for inexperienced hearing-aid wearers without overwhelming their ears with new unfamiliar sounds. Speech remains clear and comprehensible, while the sound quality can be adjusted to the individual wants and needs of the wearer. The XCEL technology is also available in the following hearing aids upon market launch: Motion SX, Motion P, Pure and Pure Carat.
